Help for Haiti: Education

The Department of Education is intensely concerned about the humanitarian crisis in Haiti caused by the January 12, 2010, earthquake and the rebuilding of their education system at all levels including elementary, secondary, postsecondary, and vocational.

This is the first of what we hope will be an active blog site that will capture new ideas and insights on how best the United States can draw on our expertise to assist the Ministry of Education in Haiti, as they work to create a system that is better that what they had prior to the crisis. We will be checking this site every day, and passing the information on to policymakers here in Washington and on the ground in Haiti, so feel free to share your thoughts on what you think can make a difference!
